Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone opened in Russia on Thursday and has made a spellbinding £1m ($1.5m) already.
Flocking for Potter
Over 415,000 Potter-mad Russian muggles have flocked to see their magical hero.
But it will have to conjure up a little bit more magic to beat the Russian takings for The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.
The Oscar-winning fantasy has made over £4.2m ($6m) at Russian cinemas since it came out a month ago.
And the battle between the two will heat up again later this year.
The second Potter film, The Chamber of Secrets, hits our screens on 15 November.
That's closely followed by the second Lord of the Rings film, The Two Towers, which is out a week before Christmas.
